A Modest Little Man
18 January 2019 - The Bread & Roses Theatre
Though we learn of Clement Attlee's immense achievements, we never get to truly understand a man who led a social, political and economic revolution - but that might just be the point.
16 January 2019 - Arcola Theatre
Jack Gamble's fine and riveting production gets another well-deserved outing, though the larger auditorium imposes some restrictions on the overall appreciation of the piece.
In Conversation with Graham Norton
13 January 2019 - Hope Theatre
Sensitive and enabling direction and a highly credible, well-written script, allow Jay Parsons to describe a recognisably real and endearing character who "doesn't fit in".
The War of the Worlds
11 January 2019 - New Diorama Theatre
A cleverly-worked, entertaining and enjoyable production from Rhum & Clay, taking its lead from the 1938 radio drama of the same title, and showing 'fake news' to be nothing new.
Two of a Kind
10 January 2019 - The Bread & Roses Theatre
Feels too brief to convey its main purpose clearly, employs a rather overused structure that unnecessarily telegraphs doom, and is marred by tedious and sometimes abrupt pacing.
